You have done a marvelous job with the Steep Hill Cemetery on FindaGrave! I admire your hard work because it is a large cemetery and you have taken the time to add family history and documents.
I, too, am related to many early residents there, the Greens, the Shaws, the Buggs and the Williams are all direct ancestors of my mother. I have some information on the Williams, if you are interested, and I have some questions on the Shaws and Greens.
Please email me at email@example.com with Steep Hill in the subject.

Hi. I just noticed that you are the conservator for my great-great grandmother, Sarah Boone Bullington! What is the likelihood of that! Blood is definitely thicker than water!
Ah, I just got it. It's because she's buried in Steep Hill. You are one very fine public servant to do all this. Thank you.
This is a very pleasant surprise.

Would you like to me to transfer Mollie to you to manage? I'd be happy to do so if you'd like, since she is family to you, no matter how distant.

I had the chance to visit Steep Hill many years ago when I first started to become interested in genealogy. My gr-grandmother was Georgianna Byrum Elliott. The family has information on her fathers service in the Civil War, he never actually served in any action for the Union. He had syphilis and there is a record from an army doctor that it was one of the worst cases he had ever seen. As a result James went blind in his old age and was assisted by his children in later life. Thank you for your dedication to the art of genealogy and the work you have done at Steep Hill

|Bob and Jeri Brock||Nancy Griffith|
My great greats were Thomas Jefferson and Tennessee Griffith Chronister. On their 1880 census in Hartford, Sebastian Co., AR I found Nancy living with them. Then I searched Sebastian Co., and found a Nancy Griffith buried in Steep Hill Cemetery in Fort Smith with the report coming from the funeral home and being given by J N Griffith. She was 75 and this would make her be born in 1810. I had her being born in 1814 or 1815 in GA. They had 2 sons, one dying at age 3 and one reported as being killed in a barber shop in Poteau with no details. Simon had a brother William Riley and I don't have burial facts on him but he was reported to have died in 1870. Martha Griffith is buried in Hall Cemetery in Poteau. It is a puzzle. I put Nancy's site in my tree until I find out the facts. Thank you for answering.

Do you know anything about his parents? I am searching for Jonathon Griffith born to Simon Monroe Griffith in LeFlore County, OK. He was reportedly shot in a barber shop in Poteau in a case of mistaken identity. First sibling born 1865 and last sibling born 1883. Mother Nancy Griffith is in this cemetery. She was married to Seth Griffith b. 1811 in TN. The census states she was born in GA. I have no information on Jonathon except first name and death information. Jeri Brock #47347716

|DeMaster||RE: James Robert Harvey Davis|
EARLY SKAGIT PIONEER CALLED; SETTLED IN '71. -
HAMILTON, Sept. 30. -- Harvey Davis, one of the best known of Hamilton's pioneer residents, passed away at his home west of town at 1:30 p.m Wednesday, after an illness of about a year. He was born near Nashville, Tenn., March 6, 1851. He came west in 1871, returning to Arkansas in 1884, where he married Miss Polly Roughton May 19 of that year. Immediately after his marriage he brought his bride west, and the young couple traveled up the Skagit river in a canoe to the ranch near Hamilton upon which they have lived since. Mr. Davis is survived by his widow, three children, Maurice and Cauncey of Hamilton, and Mrs. Myrtle Harmon of Harmon, of Phoenix, Arizona, and two grandchildren, Aleck Pflaum and Harvey Dell Harmon. All were with him at the last, his daughter having been summoned from her Arizona home when it became apparent that the end was approaching. Funeral services will be held at the Hamilton church at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, with interment in the Hamilton Cemetery.
Obituary originally published in the Bellingham Herald newspaper of Bellingham, Whatcom, Washington, USA on 30 Sep 1921.
James Robert Harvey Davis' wife, Polly Adelaide Roughton is my husband's Great Grand Aunt.

Would love to be able to help with the upcoming work on the headstones at Steep Hill but I am disabled. My health has been rapidly declining. What I do for Find-A-Grave now is done on my computer. I try to keep my listings updated and create memorial pages for people that are dear to my heart. I hope there will be a good number turn out to help and the weather is nice.

Annie Pepper still has several grand children living in the Fort Smith area (I live in Jefferson City, Mo.). I am going down there in a couple of weeks and I will see some of them. Let me talk to them about this and I will get back to you about it. I know that at least of couple of the kids live in Pacola, Ok. You are much appreciated by this family for everything you do. Thank you again.

Nope, they are not listed in the cemetery records for Lake View. If you have the date of death I suggest checking the Seattle Times - available through GenealogyBank - most public libraries have a subscription.

Find A Grave Memorial# 113313996
I have transferred this memorial to your member number. I was very sorry to read of the passing of your son-in-law's grandfather. I want to apologize for not transferring this memorial earlier as you were extremely eager for a transfer. Unfortunately, the flu and cold season has been very unkind to me this year and I have been quite ill since mid-January.
I did check The Seattle Times newspaper, but was unable to find an obituary for Mr. Davis. If your library (city, state, university) has access to GenealogyBank, The Seattle Times is part of their database and you might find articles about your son-in-law's family. The Washington State Digital Archives can also be very helpful:
There are also some great volunteers on the free King County, Washington message board found on Ancestry.com/Rootsweb if you need additional help.
